As first reported by Emojipedia, the Unicode Consortium has officially launched the 2018 emoji candidate list in beta, which means that technology companies can test and refine suggestions in the next few months. It is possible that all the emojis outlined here do not reach the final version of Emoji 11, and several have already obtained the ax, but this list is the starting point.
The proposed figures include a softball, bagel, kangaroo, teddy bear, mango, party face, skateboard, spool of yarn, redheads and many others. The full list of emoji candidates can be seen here. Here are some notable:
- Man, red hair
- Man, curly hair
- Man, bald
- Woman, red hair
- Woman, curly hair
- Woman, bald
- Pirate flag
- Face with smiling eyes and party Horn hat and party
- Roll of toilet paper
- Piece of puzzles
- Flying Disc
- Moon Cake
In addition to the new figures, Unicode 11 also proposes reversible emoji compatibility. This means that you can take emojis that point in a certain direction, such as the race, the train and the water pistol, and flip them to look in the opposite direction:
"The emoji with glyphs that look to the right or to the left can face address, according to the seller's preference, however, that can cause a definite change in meaning when exchanging text between platforms.The following ZWJ mechanism can be used to choose an explicit address. "
Apple generally includes new emoji in their annual iOS updates. For example, iOS 11 includes support for Unicode 10, which brought a handful of new facial expressions, a dinosaur and much more. If Apple follows a similar calendar this time, we're likely to see Unicode 11 and have their new emoji include iOS 12 next fall.
